"Where are you from?" which opened 4 August at the Voz Alta gallery in San Diego, features 500 photographs, 50 drawings, paintings, prints and a video by Bob Medina.

On the exhibition's opening night, the multi-media show was complemented with authentic Egyptian trimmings, with contemporary music and falafel sandwiches available.

Bob Medina and his wife moved to Alexandria in 2009 to teach at an international school, due to budget cuts in many US public schools. The artist has documented the past three years of their life in Egypt through various forms of art, capturing the pandemonium of pre and post revolution life in Alexandria.

Paintings from the exhibition recreate the tumultuous time following the 18-day uprising. The artist creatively depicts political posters and symbols in  "Where You From?  A Collection of Sights and Sounds from Alexandria".
